Influence of Thermal Radiation on Stagnation Flow towards a Stretching Sheet with Induced Magnetic Field

K. Anantha Kumar, J.V.Ramana Reddy


In this study, we studied the effects of radiation and induced magnetic field effects on the flow past a stretching sheet. The governing equations of the flow are transformed into a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations using self-suitable transformations, which are then solved numerically using Runge-Kutta based shooting technique. The effects of different non-dimensional parameters on velocity, induced magnetic field and temperature profiles along with the friction factor and local Nusselt number are discussed through graphs and tables.  Results indicate that increase in either magnetic field parameter or stretching ratio parameter enhances the velocity of the flow.

Keywords: Stagnation point flow, Induced magnetic field, thermal radiation, stretching Sheet.
